Stop Washing Your Face in The Shower - Here's Why.
Women with sensitive skin, acne prone skin, or dry skin have probably heard a common refrain from their expert friends and family about how their shower time could be exacerbating their problems. It's such a common refrain in the skincare world that some people question whether you should even shower daily — for reasons other than the potential harm to your face. What kind of shower is best for your facial skin? Long or short? Is it better to bathe with cold or warm water? The truth is that the verdict on showers and their benefits for the skin on your face isn't all that clear, and rather than accepting one opinion as "gospel," you should consider your own skin needs and how showering may help or stop you from getting your face what it needs in order to glow. What Happens to Your Skin in a Shower? The question of what showering does to your skin is perhaps the most important information in this discussion — and there are already some disagreements. However, the general consensus is that showering daily can have a few negative effects on your skin and the skin on your face. In the worst-case scenario, daily showering can exacerbate skin problems such as dry skin, itching, cracking, and bacterial overgrowth. Showering can help reduce skin bacteria, which is sometimes beneficial — but not always. While it may come as a surprise, bacteria are not all bad. In fact, bacteria and the health of your skin have a close relationship. Bacteria are necessary for the health of your skin. For example, in order for your immune system to function properly, it must be exposed to microorganisms on a regular basis. Keeping your skin clean and free of dirt and bacteria does not make you healthier; instead, it prevents your immune system from properly training its antibodies for future encounters. As a result, the antibacterial soaps that many people use in showers and hand scrubbing situations may kill off the important 'should be here' bacteria. When this happens, you're merely making room for more dangerous bacteria to colonise. And this is a major concern for people who take hot showers frequently, because excessive showering can cause your skin to dry and crack over time, allowing these more dangerous bacteria to enter your body beneath the skin barrier. This can lead to major issues, infections, and problems in the future. Is it bad to wash your face while you shower? Despite all of our warnings, there are still plenty of reasons to take our advice with a grain of salt. While a celebrity dermatologist may recommend you not to wash your face during your shower routine, the reality is that there is very little evidence to suggest any danger to your face in particular. We couldn't find any studies that suggested that washing your face in the shower could cause an increase in acne, wrinkles, dryness, or skin conditions like rosacea or eczema. The wrong products, many of which may be in your shower, are what will cause your skin problems. For example, the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) recommends avoiding alcohol and abrasive cleaners, as well as sponges, washcloths and mesh cleaning tools that can irritate your skin. That means that many of the tools you use to wash your body (and may have in your shower) aren't good for your facial skin. And, after a thorough body scrub, remember not to scrub too hard on your face. Cleansers should be applied with your fingertips, and the cleanser should be removed with the same care. And, as the AAD points out, there's the issue of water temperature, which they recommend for face washing be "lukewarm." This is likely unhappy news if you enjoy hot or cold showers. Is water temperature important? You're probably wondering, "Why the big deal about hot water?" What about saunas, steam rooms and hot towels? "What exactly is it about my shower water that is so bad for my face?" As it turns out, there's a lot that can go wrong with it. Excessively hot water has been linked to an increased risk of irritation and inflammation of the skin on your face, according to research. As far as we're concerned, this does not imply that taking a shower is bad for your face. It does, however, imply that your face-specific routine may be best staged outside of the shower, where you can control temperature, reduce the risk of injury due to water temperature fluctuations, and generally do better work for your skin health. You may be wondering about the benefits of steam and whether they mitigate the risk of irritation. Steam and hot water have numerous benefits for your skin — and the things that live in your skin. Steam can loosen and soften buildup, making blackheads and other solid blemishes easier to remove from your pores. Steaming your skin can also provide additional benefits for serums and moisturisers later on. Topical products can often be better accepted by your skin by opening up your pores and making your skin more permeable. And, contrary to popular belief, steam is beneficial to your skin's relative moisture levels. It can not only help you add water to your individual skin cells, but it can also help make subsequent products like moisturisers and serums more effective. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, steam increases blood flow in your skin's blood vessels, which can lead to increased collagen production and, eventually, plump and firm skin. All of this being said, it is recommended that you use a hot towel or bowl rather than a shower, as this gives you more control over the time and level of contact water has with your face, as well as the ability to adjust the temperature. These things are important for people who have rosacea and redness, as well as those who have broken capillaries. Women with sensitive skin should exercise caution as well, as steaming can aggravate inflammatory conditions (which means people with eczema should also be wary). When You Should Wash Your Face Instead So, the shower is off, and we both agree on that. So, where do you wash your face? When, where, and why? You should wash your face twice a day, plus more if you get sweaty, as you might after exercise or time in the sun. In most cases, washing once in the morning and once at night is sufficient. According to what we can tell, you're fine to do one of those washes right after a shower — lukewarm water and a non-abrasive, non-alcoholic cleanser are the gentle combination you'll need. Just remember to be a little gentler than you would be with your back, legs, or feet. By the way, now is the ideal time to apply a moisturiser. Hot showers (especially long ones) can dry out your skin, and for people with psoriasis and other skin issues, they can aggravate existing problems. The best time to replenish lost moisture and protect yourself for the day ahead is after your post-shower face wash.
Probiotics For Skin - How Effective Are They?
You've probably heard a lot about the importance of gut health and how oral probiotics can help keep it in tip-top shape in recent years. There are numerous probiotic products on the market today, ranging from pills to yoghurt drinks and beyond. But, exactly, what are probiotic supplements? They contain beneficial bacteria that can help you maintain a healthy microbiome in your gut. This can help with digestion and even prevent illness. Probiotics that may be beneficial to the skin If you want to try this type of skin care to help your skin's healthy bacteria and microbiome, you should know which probiotic extracts can help. Here are a few of the big guns: * S. Thermophiles may increase skin ceramides, which aid in skin cellular function. It could also help with atopic dermatitis. * In some studies, V. Filiformis was shown to improve atopic dermatitis, redness, scaling, and itchiness after two weeks. * The presence of S. Thermophilus resulted in an increase in ceramides and hydration. Lactobacillus may be beneficial in the treatment of inflammation. * B. Coagulans may help with acne, but more research is needed. Skin Care Alternatives Backed by Science Not sure if you want to invest in probiotic skin care? Or maybe you just want to wait until there's more research to back up the claims? We understand. Fortunately, there are a wide range of well-researched products available. There's something for everyone, no matter what your skin needs (hydration, clearing up, or overall health). Here are some scientifically proven remedies: Cleanser According to studies, using a high-quality cleanser can help keep skin healthy and reduce acne. Choose a non-abrasive, alcohol-free wash. Something labelled "non-comedogenic" is also helpful because it will not clog pores. Moisturizer This product is essential in any skin care regimen. It hydrates, smoothes, and can help your skin barrier, which protects your complexion from environmental factors. Do you have oily skin? You must still use one. If you don't, your oil production may increase. When your skin becomes dry, your body signals it to produce more oil. Pick a moisturiser designed specifically for acne-prone skin. Sunscreen This is one product that should not be skimped on. Not only does your face require protection from skin cancer, but using sunscreen can also help prevent ageing. According to research, UV exposure can reduce the elastic properties of the skin, resulting in sagging or wrinkles. Look for a broad-spectrum formula with at least SPF 30. Tretinoin Do you want to fight acne? Consider using tretinoin in the form of a prescription topical cream. It works by stimulating your skin's natural exfoliation of dead skin cells (which can lead to breakouts). Pick an acne cream that contains tretinoin as well as clindamycin, an antibiotic that prevents blemish-causing bacteria from multiplying. Your skin also has a microbiome (a large number of bacteria that live on the skin's surface), and probiotic skin care has recently become popular. What Exactly Is Probiotic Skin Care? Thousands of different species of bacteria live on the surface of your skin. The microbiome of your skin is made up of these bacteria. But, before you vomit, consider this: having bacteria-infested skin is a good thing. That bacteria can help protect your face from environmental factors, prevent dry skin, and do a variety of other things. However, if your skin's microbiome becomes out of balance, it can cause acne, rosacea, premature ageing, eczema, and dryness. What can disrupt your skin's microbiome? It could be anything, from the medications you're taking to the weather to the face wash you're using. You can probably guess what the goal of probiotic skin care is now that you know an out-of-balance microbiome can cause skin issues: to keep the good bacteria balanced and working in your favour, while preventing bad bacteria from causing skin issues. There are topical creams that contain live bacteria cultures. There are also creams labelled as prebiotics. While probiotics help to maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria, prebiotics contain ingredients that are thought to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. There are also oral pills that claim to help regulate your skin's microbiome. Is Probiotic Skin Care Effective? In summary? It's possible. Some research suggests that oral and topical probiotics may help to prevent and treat certain skin issues. According to one systematic review of both human and animal studies, using probiotic skin care products may help with acne, eczema, and dry skin. However, the researchers were emphatic that more research is required before that can be concluded definitively. A number of small studies have also found that probiotics may help with skin ageing, wound healing, and possibly even skin cancer. Another study found that certain probiotics may promote good bacteria, which can help restore the skin's normal pH balance and fight free radicals. Free radicals form naturally and can harm the skin's cellular structures. These free radicals can be exacerbated by environmental factors such as UV light and pollution. Skin Care with Probiotics While probiotics are traditionally thought to improve gut health, they may also benefit your skin. That's because, like your gut, your skin has its own microbiome, which means that tonnes of good bacteria live on the surface of your skin. Certain factors, such as medication or environmental factors, can have a negative impact on your skin's microbiome and even introduce harmful bacteria. When harmful bacteria outnumber healthy bacteria, skin conditions such as acne, eczema, sensitive skin, rosacea, dry skin, and others can develop. Probiotic skin care may help to address these issues and restore your skin's microbiome. There are a variety of products on the market right now, ranging from topical probiotics to oral probiotics designed specifically to improve your skin. Though more research is required before anyone can make a definitive statement, the available literature is encouraging. According to research, using probiotic skin care can help with acne, dryness, and eczema, as well as address skin issues associated with ageing. S thermophiles, lactobacillus, and other probiotic strains can be beneficial. If you're concerned that your skin's microbiome needs to be balanced, or if you're dealing with skin issues that need to be addressed, speaking with a celebrity dermatologist may be beneficial. They will be able to examine your skin type and assist you in determining what your skin requires (including whether your healthy bacteria is out of balance and you require probiotics for skin health) so you can achieve flawless, healthy skin.
The Best and Worst Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads
Some people don't even know they have acne because it doesn't look like a blemish at all. Acne comes in many different shapes, sizes, and colours. Take blackheads, those pesky dark-colored spots filled with gunk. If you've ever tried to squeeze one, you're likely to have found yourself facing down an angry bump instead, and you'll have quickly regretted it. So, what is the best way to get rid of this kind of acne on your skin? Before we look at the causes and who is most likely to get blackheads, let's look at who is most likely to get them. Blackheads are caused by a lot of different factors. People who get blackheads have too much sebum (oil), dead skin, and possibly C. acnes (the bacteria that causes acne) stuck in their hair follicles, which makes it hard for them to clean. When these things are exposed to the air, they turn black. Blackheads are called comedones in medicine. As acne starts to form, comedones start to form. When the follicle gets bigger and bigger, it can break open and spill its contents into the surrounding skin layer, which is called the dermis. This can cause an inflammatory response. This shows up on the skin as an inflammatory papule, which is more commonly known as a pimple. This is a lot more dangerous than a blackhead. Acne-prone people are more likely to get blackheads, but there is also a genetic predisposition. Hormones also play a role, causing sebum to be made (skin oil). Enlarged pores can also be found in people who have had a lot of sun damage. Ostia (small openings) can look bigger and more dilated if there is less collagen in the dermis around the hair follicle. People with the condition Favre-Racouchot have large blackheads on parts of their skin that have been sunburned. This is a very extreme example of this, though. Skin care: how to avoid getting blackheads Topical or oral retinoids can be used to keep blackheads at bay, such as prescription drugs like tretinoin or Retin-A. Adapalene, also known as Differin, is an over-the-counter retinoid that can be used to treat comedonal acne. Patients with more severe comedonal acne may need to take oral retinoids, like isotretinoin or Accutane, to get better. adds that chemical exfoliants can also be good, but doesn't like scrubs because they can irritate the skin. Getting rid of blackheads is the best way to do it. If you already have blackheads, there are a few dermatologist-approved ways to get rid of them. Some of them are also good ways to keep them from coming back. Make sure you use products that have Salicylic Acid in them. Salicylic acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid, is one of the best things you can use to get rid of blackheads. It increases cell turnover and unclogs pores. adds that the acne treatment can help dry out active acne lesions because it is a mild chemical irritant, which can help dry them out. A lot of research shows that salicylic acid can help with acne. Small double-blind and controlled studies show that people who used a 2 percent salicylic acid wash for two weeks had less acne lesions in 30 of the people who took part in the study. Add a Retinoid to Your Routine. Retinoids, which can be bought with a prescription (like Retin-A) or over the counter (Differin), are a good way to get rid of blackheads on the skin. Retinoids help keep the follicular ostia (where hair grows) from becoming blocked. They do this by promoting skin turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the skin cells. When you start using retinoid cream, comedones may get worse because cell turnover increases against a clogged opening, causing the pores to widen even more. If you keep getting help for your skin condition, the blocked ostia will start to get better, and with more skin turnover, they are less likely to get blocked again in the future. You can also use retinoid to fight ageing and regenerate your skin. Take a look at Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Alpha hydroxy acids, like glycolic acid and lactic acid, can also be good for your skin. Salicylic acid is better at unclogging pores, though. Choose an in-office treatment with your Dermatologist. People who see a dermatologist can help them get rid of their dark spots on their skin. You can get in-office treatments that can help make your pores look less noticeable. Those are called laser treatments, and they don't hurt. They include nonablative resurfacing like Fraxel laser, Clear + Brilliant laser, and microneedling. While some people are happy with the results of a single treatment, others may need more than one to get the results they want. Worst Ways to Get Blackheads Out of Your Skin Harsh Scrubs. Some people want to use an exfoliating scrub right away to get rid of all their dead skin. People who use chemical exfoliators like AHAs should avoid over-exfoliating with a granule scrub like they might have been told to do as a teen, when they manually scrubbed the grains into their skin until it was red. Harsh scrubs can strip your natural oils and make your skin more oily, says a doctor at the hospital. Manual Extractions. Fight the urge to pop any pimples that you see. If you squeeze your blackheads, you can cause the follicle to break open and cause an inflammatory lesion, or cyst, to form. As a result, you can turn your blackhead into something that's much more serious on your skin Keep in mind that the closer a blackhead is to the surface of your skin, the less risky it is to get rid of it. Suction tools. Tech that says it can remove sebum from pores may sound good, but these products may do more harm than good, so be careful. This suction can be bad for the skin on your face. It can cause broken blood vessels, or telangiectasias, to appear, especially around your nose. Final Thoughts While it might be almost impossible not to try to remove that blackhead with your own two fingers, try your best not to do it. Prevention is the best medicine. The best way to get rid of blackheads is to use a few effective ingredients, such as retinoids, which are both good for your skin and good for keeping new blackheads away. Take your skin to a dermatologist for help.

4 Incredible Ways to Store Your Leather Jackets
In a fast-paced fashion industry where trends go viral until they lose their limelight, leather jackets never fail to impress us with their appealing sheen. People of all genders love adorning themselves with trendy leather jackets. In fact, these leather delights do not only polish your outer appearance but they also provide comfort from the cold UK weather. Women in particular cannot keep their hands away from black leather jackets that make them look incredibly stylish and intimidating. According to the “StyleofLady” fashion blogs, black leather jackets instantly boost ones confidence and perhaps that is the reason why women absolutely relish these slick beauties. It is important to note that while leather jackets have won the hearts of people, they are oftentimes exceedingly expensive and it can be quite a struggle to store leather in your home considering one’s lifestyle and the weather conditions in UK. So to make life easier for you and your leather jacket, we have offered 4 best ways in which you can store these jackets to make them look as new as they were on their first day. 1. Store the leather jackets in your suitcases The best and easiest way to prevent your leather from wearing out is to zip it in your suitcase. When you are not travelling to your favorite winter destination, you can put your leather delights in a wide suitcase and slide it under your bed. Leather is a thick-layered fabric and it needs room to breathe, thus it is advised that it should be placed either in a wooden exterior or a fabric so that it does not lose its invigorating shine and newness. 2. Keep your leather away from sunlight and water (they are not plants!) Both sunlight and water can damage your snazzy leather jackets. Women if you truly admire the immaculate vampire-like black leather on yourselves please do not let the sun shine on them. Sunlight can drastically change the color of the leather to a dull brown or dirty grey. It is a relief in this sense then that UK is not home to plenty of sunny days! It is strictly advised that your leather must not come in contact with water. Dampness and humidity can cause your leather to shrink, it can also become perturbingly creased and you know that just takes away the essence of leather jackets. So if you do not want to get trapped in a Ross-stuck-in-the-bathroom situation (hint: Friends) you must store your leather buddies in cool, dry cupboards. 3. Don’t forget to condition the leather jackets every few months If climate conditions are not in your favor for a long period of time then it is advisable that to keep your leather as good as new, you should indulge in frequent conditioning and cleaning of it. Just like ones skin, leather also needs to be hydrated in order to breathe and prevent itself from shrinking or cracking. There are many affordable conditioners that can be used for this task. However, according to “Bob Vila” there are easy home remedies that can be employed in the conditioning of your leather jacket. For instance, soaking a cloth in a blend of luke-warm water, liquid soap and vinegar and wiping it on your leather jacket can work wonders! 4. Use Wide Wooden Hangers Another economical and effective way to prevent your leather from damage is to hang your chic leather jackets on a wide wooden hanger. Wooden hangers may be easily available at your home if you often send your other formal clothes for dry-cleaning. Make sure to keep the jackets away from other clothes in your wardrobe. In fact, you can allocate a separate portion in the closet for your leather jackets where you can hang them on a wooden hanger and separate each of your fashionable leather delight with an acid-free paper sheet. Here’s a secret: For a long-lasting relationship with your trendy leather jackets, invest in Modora’s black notched collar faux-leather jacket. Of course, you have to follow all the ways mentioned above to store this jacket but the plus-point is that you can buy this.
Natural And Ayurvedic Skincare Routine For Radiant Skin
When you clean your skin thoroughly at night, you help prevent clogged pores and, as a result, the occurrence of blackheads and pimples. Because skin penetration levels are higher at night, your products will work much better and deliver results much faster. We've put together a nighttime skincare routine for women who want to achieve glowing skin quickly. 1. Cleanse your face. Always wash your face to remove all makeup, dirt, and pollution from your skin. Your face wash should fight signs of ageing and improve skin radiance by containing the goodness of kakadu plum, the highest source of vitamin C.

The Anti-Aging Diet: Foods That Maintain Youthful Skin
Is it possible to look younger by changing what you eat? Yes. As for what you eat, it can take years off your looks. The right foods are full of things that fight ageing and wrinkles. Getting to know antioxidants: The anti-wrinkle heroes How can what you eat have such a big impact on your body? There are a lot of things that help. Antioxidants are important. They are nutrients that can protect your body from the ageing effects of free radicals, a process called oxidation, which is bad for your body. There are many natural things that happen in your body and in the world that make free radicals. These things include exposure to the sun and cigarette smoke, as well as chemicals and even exercise. There are two types of free radicals: molecules or atoms that have lost one of their electrons and are now unpaired, which makes them dangerous. When an atom or molecule isn't stable, it looks for other atoms or molecules (yours) to stabilise it. This causes a chain reaction of unstable atoms and molecules in your body. When this happens, your cells' DNA changes. This is a big deal because it affects your skin and your entire body. There are a lot of things that make us age, like oxidative stress and inflammation. Eat a lot of fiber-rich foods like fruits and vegetables. The more you eat each day, the more young you will look. Fruits and vegetables are usually low in calories and can help your body get rid of toxins and start over. Colorful berries. Antioxidant anthocyanin is what makes berries blue, red, and purple in colour, and it is what makes them healthy. If you want to get a healthy dose of this powerful antioxidant, you should eat a lot of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, pomegranates, cherries and blood oranges, to name a few of the best foods. There are many powerful antioxidants in these foods. They repair and protect your skin cells. Broccoli and broccoli sprouts. Other foods that have a lot of powerful antioxidants are cranberries, onions, and apples. They contain Quercetin. It's also a natural anti-inflammatory agent, which helps fight the No. 2 cause of ageing, which is inflammation. You can get 30 times more antioxidants from broccoli sprouts than you can from regular broccoli. Spinach. Lutein is found in spinach, kale, corn, and a lot of other foods. It can give your skin more antioxidant power and make your skin more hydrated. Garlic. Garlic contains allium; an antioxidant that packs a punch. It is a free-radical fighter that can help your skin and your immune system. Garlic, onions, and scallions all have it. Beans. Eat your beans as well. There are a lot of black beans and black soybeans that have a lot of anthocyanin, which makes them look black. Soybeans are also a good source of isoflavones, which have been linked to anti-aging properties, and they are also high in fibre. Tea. Catechins, which are found in green tea, dark chocolate, and red wine, are another antioxidant that does a lot of good. They can help you stay healthy. Have four to six cups of tea with lemon every day. This helps the antioxidants in your cells work better. Wine. Resveratrol, which is found in red wine, has a lot of anti-aging properties. Catechins are also found in red wine. It's another powerful antioxidant. Yellow and orange root vegetables. Make sure your food has a lot of beta-carotene, which is good for your health. These antioxidants are very good for your skin and eyes. Carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, and squash are all good choices. Tomatoes. Lycopene, which is found in red grapefruit, tomatoes, watermelon, and pink grapefruit, is a powerful weapon against free radicals. It can also be found in other fruits and vegetables. It can slow down sun-induced ageing and get rid of free radicals. Fill your glass with tomato juice every day. Nuts. Eat some nuts and seeds every day. They have a lot of good fat that helps your skin look fuller, antioxidants, and a lot of minerals that are good for your skin, too. Salmon. At least three times a week, eat salmon. It has a lot of good things for your skin, from the omega-3s to the high-quality protein that it has. For six weeks, you should make it a part of your diet. You'll start to see more plump, younger skin. Water. Do this: drink six to eight glasses of water a day. As long as you are writing with decaffeinated tea, that counts, too! Caffeinated drinks can make you less hydrated, which can make your skin look drier. Final word As much as possible, eat fruits and vegetables that are already cooked or raw. To keep all of the antioxidants, steaming is the best way to do it. Also, cut back on sweets. Avoid processed, refined foods and sugars, which can make your body more active with free radicals. As often as possible, choose from all of these great foods that fight ageing and wrinkles. You'll be on your way to a healthy, younger-looking you.

8 Habits That Cause Premature Wrinkles And Skin Aging
People of all ages have beautiful skin. But as time goes on, the glow of your skin can fade. Cut back on these habits that can make your skin look older before it's ready. 1. You can get dark circles and fine lines if you keep rubbing your eyes all the time. People get under-eye bags when the muscles around their eyes weaken as they get older. If you keep rubbing your eyes, it will be fine. It won't have any long-term effects. Continuous eye rubbing can cause an issue by increasing inflammation in the area. Keeping your eyes rubbed all the time can make the lines around your eyes look worse. I often see this as a problem for people with eczema, who may rub their eyes too much because they are itchy and hurt. Some people call them Dennie-Morgan lines because they look like a black eye when they get them. That's not all. It can darken the skin around the eyes if you pull, tug, and rub on the skin there. Determine what is making you rub your eyes. You should see an allergist to figure out what's causing your eyes to itch and to treat your symptoms. A dermatologist can help you figure out what kind of treatment is best for your eczema. 2. Not getting enough sleep hurts your skin's ability to grow new, healthy skin. A good night's sleep is important for energy, concentration, and having a good complexion. At night, the skin is in a state of renewal, and it starts to grow new skin. When you don't get enough sleep, it can show on your face. A study of 60 women published in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in January 2015 found that women who didn't get enough sleep, which was defined as five hours or less, had more signs of ageing, a weaker skin barrier, and less satisfaction with their looks. You can get enough sleep if you follow the National Sleep Foundation's four tips: Every day, go to bed and wake up at the same time. This will help your body get used to the same times. Set up your bedroom in a dark, cool, and quiet way. Finish your meal at least two to three hours before going to sleep. If you drink a lot of caffeine in the afternoon, you should cut back a lot. 3. It can be hard to get a clean line when you use a straw. Were you born with a straw? It may keep your teeth from getting stained, but it can also make your mouth look older. This is a sign that your skin is getting older. There are muscles in the area around your lips when you drink from a straw. There is a better chance of getting that crease in the skin if we work those muscles more. It's the same reason that people who smoke get wrinkles around the mouth, like they do. To find the lines, you can keep your lips pursed over and over again. The best way to avoid straws is to not use them at all. 4. When you are stressed, cortisol is released, which causes collagen to break down. Whenever we are stressed, we feel it in every part of our bodies. Your skin is part of this. If you're always worried or can't sleep, your body is always making stress hormones, which can make you look older than you should. Inflammation and sagging skin are both caused by the stress hormone cortisol, which also breaks down collagen. Stress, because of the increased inflammation, has been shown to speed up the ageing process in studies. Stress can be reduced primarily by making changes to your lifestyle, like eating well, getting enough sleep, and practising meditation. All of these things have a big impact on the way your body and face look as you get older. Find out what truly relaxes you and do it often. 5. Using makeup to protect your skin from the sun exposes your skin to UV rays. SPF is the best way to keep your skin from getting older before it should. Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure caused about 80% of the visible signs of ageing on the face, like wrinkles and changes in pigmentation. You may not be protecting your skin from harmful UV rays if you only use makeup that has SPF in it. It blocks UVB rays but not UVA rays, which cause fine lines and brown spots. Most makeup blocks UVB but not UVA. As a bonus, to get the sunscreen benefit, you'd have to put on a lot of make-up. Makeup will add extra protection to sunscreen, but it's likely not enough on its own. Before you put on your makeup, put on a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen or moisturiser. Broad-spectrum means that the product will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, which can make your skin age. As well as their makeup, people need SPF to keep them safe. SPF 30 is a good level of protection for most people. 6. Sun damage can happen to your neck and hands if you don't pay attention. Ultraviolet light is the single most important thing you can do to keep from getting older. Even if you use sunscreen every day, you might forget about your neck and hands. This might be why they're the first places to show your age. Previous research found that women with visible veins and wrinkles on the hands were perceived to be older than their peers with plumper hands, even if they were the same age. In time, we lose some of our ability to move freely. The hands lose volume and fat, which makes the skin clear and wrinkled. Your skin kind of thins out, so your hands don't look as big. In this picture, you can see the veins a little better. They look wrinkly. As a result of long-term sun exposure, the skin on the neck can turn dark and look older. In the same way, you can try to avoid harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. If you must go outside, it's the easiest thing to do is find shade and wear a hat with a brim and sunscreen. She says that some of her patients wear gloves that protect their hands from the sun when they drive. 7. If You Don't Wear Sunglasses, You Risk Damage to Your Eyes and the Skin Around them. As we've said, UV rays can damage the eyelid, cornea, lens, and retina. Sunglasses protect the eyes from these rays, which can also damage the skin around the eyes. These movements like squinting, laughing, and frowning can make your face look older over time. The more you use your muscles to make these movements, the more wrinkles and lines will show up when your face is at rest. Even in the dead of winter, you should wear sunglasses. The more protection you have, the better off you will be. Look for a pair that says 100% protection against both UVA and UVB or 100% protection against UV 400 on the package. 8. Soap can make wrinkles worse. Despite what your grandparents say, soap bars are often full of harsh detergents that strip the skin of its natural oils, making it dry and flaky. Even though dry skin doesn't cause wrinkles on its own, it does make them easier to see. There are things that can cause allergies and rashes on your skin when you have dry skin. These things are things like bacteria and viruses. Because your skin's barrier is weaker when it is dry, this is the reason why. A lot of people have trouble with their skin, so they have to be careful with the soap they use. If you have sensitive skin, eczema, or rosacea, then yes, the soap you use will have an effect on how your skin looks and feels. You should use a cleanser that is hydrating to clean your face. You should look for the words gentle and moisturising on the package. Avoid using deodorant soap or products that could dry out your skin, like alcohol, fragrance, retinoids, or alpha hydroxy acid. After you wash your face, apply a moisturiser with antioxidants like vitamin C.
